To begin our study, we investigated a bunch of common items while asking ourself, "Is this a rock?" We were shocked by some of the answers! Challenge yourself, which of these are rocks: a spoon, chalk, salt, fossilized alligator teeth, shells, or soil.
We also learned how to correctly use a proscope. The proscope will help us better observe rocks and minerals by letting us see details our eyes cannot focus on alone.
